Finally, a baby girl in the family!  Little Kiera joins 2 big brothers and an older cousin in a sweet young family who is very happy to have her. I have a sneaking suspicion she’ll be running the show in no time.

When is the best time of the year for a family photo? Whenever you can get the family together of course! The Aitken family were all going to be together around Christmas time and they wanted pictures of the whole family. We went out the day after Boxing Day and had a fun shoot in the snow.

Sounds like Mother Nature is playing an April Fool’s Joke on Edmonton, the weather looks closer to winter than spring!  We’re soaking up some sun in Maui at the moment (yes, it’s OK to hate us), and I thought this would be a good day to share the winter family photos that I did for the Rayners.  They’ve been on this blog a few times! This was the last session in a 4 part series where we explored their acreage in every season.  This winter has actually been fairly mild, and we had a beautiful sunny day to take this super adorable family out into the snow.

I knew Linda in my former life as a scientist, and thanks to the wonders of Facebook we have been able to keep in touch! I was thrilled when she contacted me that she was getting married, and even happier when I got to meet Mike. He is a wonderful match for her.  We bonded over the crude humor of Jim Jeffries, he smiled at me through the FREEZING winds that I made him stand in, and best of all he makes Linda smile.  They drove down to Canmore for their session with me and we had an absolute blast. There should be an epic photo in here of them kissing next to some mountain goats, but the goats wouldn’t cooperate. Too many tourists with cameras and they got scared off lol.

This headshot feature post is a mix of work from me and Michael!  Michael is definitely the go-to for studio headshots, he has a blast working with everyone from actors to realtors to banking executives.  He’s recently had the pleasure of working with several members from the Schmidt Realty group!  I prefer a more environmental approach to headshots, and first up is our amazing admin assistant Venessa, without whom our world would be a little bit less efficient. We are so lucky to have added her to Team Shandro just over a year ago!

Remember when Paul proposed to Diana via a romantic helicopter trip??  I do – it was one of my favourite experiences of my career so far.  Well, they’re now happily married, and with a little one on the way! I was thrilled when they got in touch with me again for photos of the next major milestone in their lives.

I headed out to Tofield for winter maternity photos on the farm where they live.  I was fascinated by some of the animals that Paul has hunted and now has beautifully displayed in their home. He and Diana are over the moon in love with each other, and I can just imagine how incredibly loved this little baby is going to be.

Pinch me. Honestly.  I just got home from a trip to Vancouver, and thought about all the traveling I have done in the last few years. It’s a great joy in my life to get to explore the world, and I’m so incredibly lucky to have the flexibility with my career to take vacations and work in different places.  I’ve never had a bucket list, but I have a travel wish list I’ll never get through in a lifetime.  I’ve fallen so deeply in love with Hawaii that I’ll be back there twice more before wedding season hits!

The opportunity to shoot Grace & Yang on the stunning island of Kauai was fantastic.  They brought me to one of my favourite places in the world, how could I say no!  Instead of just shooting on one day, I twisted their arm to let me shoot them twice (I was just a bit excited) and we explored both the South shore of Kauai at Shipwreck Beach and also the North shore at Hanalei Bay and the Napali Coast.  We had some fantastic meals together as well, and a LOT of fun hanging out.  I absolutely adore these two.

**IF YOU’RE THINKING OF GETTING MARRIED IN HAWAII, I WANT TO TALK TO YOU! PLEASE EMAIL info@shandrophoto.com**

I’m going to put the behind-the-scenes first this time – thanks to Michael for coming with me to assist.

I have been looking forward to Courtney and Jeff’s wedding since the spring. When I shot Courtney and Jeff’s engagement everything was just so easy. They looked great, we got along great, the chemistry was evident, and the pictures showed it. I couldn’t wait to make more images of them. They are a gorgeous couple, don’t you agree?

In the days leading up to the wedding, Edmonton experienced unseasonably warm weather. The mercury hit the double digits and much of the snow melted. Courtney had been hoping for a snowy winter wedding, and the day before the wedding it got cold and it snowed on her wedding day!

The ceremony and reception were both held in the Wedgewood room at the Edmonton Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. The team at FaBLOOMosity did an incredible job with the flowers.

Venue: Fairmont Hotel Macdonald
Florist: faBLOOMosity
Hair: Jennifer Chivers
Makeup: Blushed Beaute
Cake: Cake Affair

I got to go and take engagement photos of Karissa and Logan during the great January heat wave of 2015. Their wedding is going to be in a rural setting, so we did the opposite for their engagement photos and took them downtown. We had a lot of fun. It was like hanging out with old friends. I can’t wait to travel to Lac La Biche for the wedding this summer.

Yang proposed to Grace in Banff so it was an obvious choice for them to have Banff engagement photos!  Despite some chilly and windy conditions, we had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful natural areas around the town of Banff.  This sweet couple was up for anything including hiking up a hill in heeled boots (Grace, not Yang of course…) and snuggling in the snow.  I can’t wait for our next shoot together!
